It depends on the type of internet connection you have - is your internet connection phone line or cable?
Are you replacing the Netgear or just no longer have a need for it?
Don't delete the folder - it will not uninstall properly. That folder is likely for something else...
When a router is added to a network, it isn't really installed from a software aspect - it's just a piece of hardware. Occasionally, manufacturers add a small piece of software just to help with setup, but to remove the router from the network, it isn't necessary to do anything with that.
To remove the Netgear from your network, power off the cable modem, the router and the pc. Disconnect all of the cables from the Netgear and connect one ethernet cable from the modem to your computer. Power the modem back on and wait 60 seconds - turn the pc on. Your network will be back online at this point without the router.
If you have any other questions about the router, please let me know...
